The City Council of New York
The Center for Space Science was made possible by the generosity of the New York City Council and the vision and on-going support of Alan J. Gerson.
Many of the resources employed by the Center for Space Science were created by NASA. Additionally, the Center for Space Science works with NASA’s Educational Program Specialist at the Goddard Space Flight Center to stay up-to-date on NASA’s current educational initiatives.
The National Challenger Learning Organization
Created by the families of the crew of the Challenger shuttle, the Challenger Learning Centers were designed to educate students about space science and the mission of Challenger. The National Challenger Learning Organization is comprised of all of the informal learning institutions that house Challenger Learning Centers, including the NYC Center for Space Science Education. Annual meetings of the National Challenger Learning Organization provide opportunities for all of these institutions to share the ideas and programs they have used at their sites.
The American Museum of Natural History
The Center for Space Science has worked closely with the American Museum of Natural History to develop curricula, such as Airplanes and the Atmosphere, and to create opportunities for teachers and students to experience thought-provoking and memorable out-of-class education.
